    Our 2002 Corvette Convertible

     
    In 2001 all our kids had grown and moved out. My wife and I decided that the time had come to buy ourselves a sports car. At 1st we thought we wanted the Mercedes Kompressor. However I found I was really too big to fit in that and many other sports cars.
    Then we checked out Corvette. With the top down it's one of the most beautiful cars around. I also fit comfortably in it. It's also comfortable on long drives. When we lived in California we used to drive it on the weekends to our home in Arizona near the Colorado River.
    When the car got built to our specifications and delivered I was in the bottom of the Grand Canyon out of contact with the outside world for a few weeks. So i wasn't available to pick it up. My wife went and picked it up and it's still just in her name... I better be good.
    In 2003 I decided to buy a more vintage sports car and bought the 1973 Datsun 240Z also shown with the Corvette. We still have both cars.
